Simple sauce on this sultry Summer day...
Surrender should not equate to Settling! For me, at the point of surrender, I'm giving it over completely to God. I can't carry it. I can't fix it. I can't stress one more second about it. I've realized, yet once again, that I am not in control, but God always is (in control). It doesn't mean that I've decided to be slothful in concerns affecting me or others. It doesn't mean that I'm settling for any ole outcome. It does mean that I'm saved, and in that, I have to trust God to handle it---all of it! My natural instinct is to forget that, at times. In the "spiritual", I know that my part is to continue to pray for God's way and His will in the matter. That is forever and always the safest place.
So scored here...
Settling means accepting less than I know God can handle. Surrender is escalating it to the highest entity to receive greater than I could ever ask or think.
"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us"
~Ephesians 3:20 (NKJV)
